a few quotes from folks have weighed in on this debate, most notably president obama and governor romney in the most recent, the first presidential debate on october 3. governor romney, every freak on has good regulation, at the same time regulation can be excessive. the dodd-frank act had a number of provisions i think it unintended consequences that are harmful to the economy. it's killing regional and small banks. i would repeal and replace it. president obama, the reason we been such an enormous economic crisis was probably by reckless behavior on wall street, inc. putting main street eristic we stepped in and the toughest reforms on wall street since the 1930s. so the question is, as in the other thing with too much oversight and regulation on wall street? senator warner of virginia, who was involved in crafting the bill, voted for it, congress never gets it right when you're looking at massive reform legislation the first time through. your direction in the air and then you come back two or three years hence to do a corrections legislation. secretary of the treasure tim geithner in
